Enjoy a scenic drive to Villa La Angostura after pickup from your Bariloche hotel. En route to this traditional mountain village, nestled in the narrow Quetrihué Peninsula in northern Patagonia, relax as you listen to onboard commentary from your knowledgeable guide.
When you reach La Angostura, take in the vivid natural landscape, including deep lakes and vast mountain skies that merge in a spectrum of violet, indigo and green. Pass by the shores of Nahuel Haupi Lake, and enjoy breathtaking views of emerald forests against soaring Andes mountains covered in snow. Feel the harmony and tranquility of this mountain retreat, a popular vacation spot for local families who come for rest and recreation such as fishing, skiing and hiking in the open terrain.
As you stroll through the mountain village with your guide and small group, take in the presence of Patagonian trees such as coihues and ñires. In spring or summer seasons, listen to the sweet song of local birds like the diuca and bandurria. If you visit in winter, walk through fallen leaves and scattered snow among resilient mountain flowers such as amancays and mutisias.
Your guide will point out the town’s alpine architectural style where charming houses and quaint shops are all designed from wood. Enjoy free time in the village center for meals at a local restaurant (own expense), or browse for artisanal products like chocolate, beer and trout – caught from the Correntoso River – before return transport to your Bariloche hotel.
